“A complex system that works is invariably found to have evolved from a simple system that worked. The inverse proposition also appears to be true: A complex system designed from scratch never works and cannot be made to work. You have to start over, beginning with a working simple system.”
—John Gall


  1. yeah simple. like. make no plans and suddenly, you have a master plan of spontaneity! so far...no plans...no spontaneity.

  2. i think the keyword in that quote is "system" meaning that there was a plan from the beginning both for the simple and for the expansion...
